This level of violent hateful rhetoric is unacceptable, and the GOP needs to own up to it and disavow it, ASAP.
It's good to see a few Republicans speaking out against the hateful talk, but I want McCain, the RNC, and current GOP officials too--otherwise, it's clear that they have no shame about inciting angry hateful mobs.
OMG, what a crock of shite CNN is echoing about age & health, saying McCain released 1100 pages of records but Barack released a one-page summary. Um, perhaps Barack's health can be summed up in a page: 47 years old and physically fit, not a 72-year-old with recurring melanoma and possible longer-term health issues from his injuries (not to mention his mental health and anger management issues):
If Gwen Ifill had to bend over backwards trying not to seem biased for Obama just because of her book on African American politicians, why aren't we howling to the moon about Brokaw's strong ties to and bias for McCain?
I don't think the Democratic landslide is going to go above a certain level, but I wouldn't say Barack's campaign has peaked too early, or even necessarily hit its peak yet. Of course, we will hit a plateau past which there are no more gains, but I'll settle for less than 50 states in our landslide, won't you?
confidential to Barack Obama:
1) I can see letting the torture vote slide by to avoid 4 encores of "POW POW POW", but on all other issues, stop giving McCain a pass.
2) Please add at least one more hand gesture to your repertoire. The "Palin's expertise is this big" gesture is a nice alternative to the Clintonian finger-point, but it's getting really old.
